A surburb of Seattle once known for it's affluent inhabitants. The island now is home to mostly middle to upper middle class elitists who continue to believe, and tell everyone they meet, that MI is full of rich people. Students at MIHS are typically sheltered and rarely leave the eastside unless completely necessary (aka going to the airpot or on occasion to downtown seattle) for fear of getting shot by the rough, inner city youth of seattle. The downtown consists of Starbucks, and one bad restaurant after another. Unfortunately, Islanders won't support local businesses and so instead of becoming a charming community within a city, like Madison Park or Queen Anne, Mercer Island becomes a generic and gross suburb similar to the likes of Factoria.
I'm glad that I don't live on Mercer island because then I would suck.

A beautiful scenic island located in the center of Lake Washington, full of friendly, but wealthy people who own your daddies business. Don't get too jealous.
Oh shit, I wish I lived on Mercer Island so I wouldn't have to eat CORNBREAD again tonight!

Although people from Mercer Island, mainly teenagers, are known as stuck up, rich, white people most are not. In fact they are some of the nicest people I have ever met and they get a great education. Although the football team sucks, they pwn everyone at every other sport, except baseball and basketball. state champs in Golf, Swimming, Water Polo (mens and womens), lacrosse (mens and womens), and runner up in gymnastics. who can have 6 champion teams in one year, not bellevue. Also, there are many great bands that are from Mercer Island like Oceans in Oblivion, Left at the Castle, Left Lane, Mercury and used to be I-90. One more thing, not everybody is rich.
Mercer Island pwns Bellevue.

A very stereotyped place with a lot of rich people, but a lot of them are still really nice. Not all who live on Mercer Island are rich and not all are spoiled.

Mercer Island is about 13 miles around and wedged in the lake in between the Seattle area and the Bellevue area. Most notoriously known for its monetary stature, a very large portion of the island it very middle class, but has many wealthy families as well. The high school (MIHS) has a deep rivalry against Bellevue, and each have their own bragging rights. Where Mercer Island boasts over 95% over of their graduating student going onto college, superior academic standards and an average of 3-7 state titles per year, Bellevue has a dynasty football team and.... the pancake corral which they feel compelled to yell at the Islanders during games for lack of a better phrase.
Bellevue: Pancake Corral!!

An island in proximity to Seattle, Bellevue, and many other Western Washington cities. While rumored to be a stuck-up, rich community, it actually is filled with nice, oftentimes middle-class families. It just goes to show that stereotypes are not always accurate. In fact, more often than not, they are far from it.

And football teams aren't the sole factor in determining a school's greatness. For those of you who do not know.
Insert name of Generic Ignorant person here: LULZ M-EYE SUKKS! MERCER ISLAND IZ FO RICHH FAGBAGZ!

Me: ...Way to stereotype.
Loser.
